I would not worry about calcium and others except ammonia, nitrites and nitrates. The others will be out of wack because of the cycle. If your cycle was halfway done you would see big ammonia spike and yours says 0. Once your tank is o ammonia and nitrites and high nitrates then do a good size PWC and then start worrying about calcium and the others. HTH

What brand salt mix do you use?
When done cycling a large PWC's is usually recommended. Depending on the salt mix your using, that may bring Ca up some.
